Troy turns to the one thing he does know, baseball. What he was trying to explain in this quote is how he has been safe and comfortable for the last eighteen years of his marriage and he was given a chance to do something thrilling and he took it. Troy is trying to compare the thrill of cheating to stealing second base after being safe at first. Troy and Cory in the story are not the loving father-son couple, they hardly see eye to eye on anything. Another theme of baseball this story follows is the idea of three strikes your out.

Baseball gives me confidence and reminds me of where some of my talents lie. Baseball has always been a talent I can fall back on when I begin to feel bad about myself. Though baseball can not always solve my problems, hitting in a batting cage or playing catch with a teammate is nearly a surefire way to get me into a more positive state of mind. At the beginning of fall, I made a profile on a baseball recruiting website that is used by a majority of college programs, and every now and then I will receive a notice that college coaches are looking at my profile and are potentially trying to recruit me to play baseball at their school.

Based off of the two argumentive essays, I believe that Alexander Joy Cartwright is the actual inventor of baseball. One of my reasons for my beliefs is that according to Alexander Joy Cartwright, the Inventor of Baseball, "Doubleday... enrolled at West Point, some 150 miles away." As well as that being said, he never once mentioned creating such a sport in any of his journal entries. In Abner 's essay, it was arguing that he created baseball, but it doesn 't mention a diary once. It only cites accounts from one of his friends, Abner Grave, who could have easily been arguing in favor of Doubleday, when all along it was Alexander.
Abner Doubleday in his early 20s was the man who invented the game commonly known as baseball. In Cooperstown, New York, during the summer of 1839, Abner then brought up the idea of a ball being batted by a bat. He then went on to be Civil war hero, leaving Baseball behind not knowing it would be America’s beloved pastime. Baseball as defined in the dictionary, “a ball game played between two teams of nine on a field with a diamond-shaped circuit of four bases.” This definition however does not cover the lengths and difficult regulations the game contains.

After college Jackie Robinson played baseball for the Kansas City Monarchs, a AAA team. “Because of institutionalized racism and World War II, he did not play his first big-league game until he was twenty-eight years old, and therefore his major-league career spanned only ten seasons”(Jackie Robinson). Jackie Robinson had a very good batting average and stolen base Percentage, which made one manager say: “If that Robinson kid was white I’d sign him right now (the Jackie Robinson Story)!” One manager was not afraid of signing Jackie. His name was Branch Rickey.
